JonPaul Bows is run by two regular guys who just happen to have a passion for bows. Jon Hatch and Paul Prier have over 30 years of combined bow-making experience. Since 1997, they have worked together with a team of craftsmen to develop carbon-fiber composite bows good enough to outshine traditional wood bows. By combining traditional French models with high-tech materials, JonPaul Bows has raised a new standard in the industry for playability and aesthetics. At the same time, their bows are durable enough to stand up to the hazards of orchestra pits. Truly, JonPaul Bows are the best of both worlds: old-world craftsmanship and new-world technology.
